Notes/Commercial Description:
Simply put: Fruit Rye Ale. A bountiful blend of toasted rye flakes and two row malted barley make wort fermented with 200 pounds of pureed strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries resulting in a sweet fruity delicacy. Intoxicatingly refreshing and brewed special for those ladies who enjoy their wine.

Finally getting to try my first beer from these guys.

A: Amber in color with a definite reddish/purplish tinge to it. Almost like a mixed berry smoothie tinge. A thin white head caps the beer.

S: Like sniffing fermented mixed berry juice. Tons of green strawberry, plum, blueberry and grape juice. Has a kind of off putting fermented smell to it that makes it harder to get near the more this warms.

T: The base beer almost reminds me of a tripel. Sweet and malty with a bit of a clove taste to it. But draped over it, you get this heavy mixed berry note with a wet hay-like edge to it. Something in the background tastes like the smell of wet dog. Not really a fan of this one.
